    Getting spammed in blog comments by the same Jack ASS. How to block the spammer's IP?

    I am getting spammed with the same comment that contains hundreds of links to porn, drugs and hate sites over 100 times per day. How do I block that robot style comments from entering the spam filter.

    Well first of all what spam filter have you got?

    Or you can use .htaccess to block the IP etc

    Have you installed the Akismet plugin? Or aren't you using WP?

    There are a lot of other antispam addons for WP away from akismet, Google it & find it

    In wordpress you can mark the comment as spam. If other can use htaccess to block the ip or you can forward the ip to your host and they can block at the firewall.

    Now you might want to install a captcha system to prevent this as the spammers can rotate there ips and depending on your setup may not ever catch them.

    You can install the 'Wordpress Antispam' plugin to block the IP.

    I use Akismet plugin for wordpress. The spam is getting filtered I am just getting sick of deleting all the comments. Some of the comments are from forum members and I would hate to delete them.

    wp-spamfree blocks the bots. It has worked well for me.

    I know that sometimes Akismet move good comment (which is not spam) in spam folder but still its best solution IMO.

    Have you tried the wp-spamfree? It deletes all the spam comments that come for spambots. Wp Spamfree uses both javascript and cookies to detect and block.

    Akismet is good. But too many good comments get moved to the spam box and get deleted automatically if you don't check.
